2023 - 2024 Season

About The Play

In 1946 Frank Capra blessed the world with his masterpiece “It’s A Wonderful Life”. Powerhouse is delighted to present Philip Grecian’s terrific adaptation of this cherished and uplifting tale. Allow George Bailey to share what his befuddled guardian angel teaches him – that we all can make a difference … that all lives matter. This holiday season, fill your hearts with magic!
